log/log10 are fine:

In [4]: numpy.log(numpy.array([3],dtype='f'))
Out[4]: array([ 1.09861231], dtype=float32)

In [5]: numpy.log10(numpy.array([3],dtype='f'))
Out[5]: array([ 0.47712123], dtype=float32)

I tried the following c code which also runs fine:
#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>

  double r = log1p((double)1.0);

  printf("%f\n", r);

  return 0;

Compiled with gcc -g -O2 log1ptest.c -o log1ptest. Maybe it's only
triggered on some cryptic combination of cflags?

It's not a function i'm likely to every use, but i'm curious to know
what's wrong.
